FNA has received a grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation for funding various tall grass prairie and woodland restoration projects for 2018 and 2019. In order to receive this funding, we are obligated to both raise funds and provide volunteer efforts in the field as part of our outreach program. Any donations received that designate the use of these funds for the grant will be matched by three dollars of grant funds. The total that can be matched by our donations will be $21,000 – to receive that full amount we will need to raise an additional $7,000.
Please note that for funds to be used for this purpose the donation must state that it is for use as matching funds for the Illinois Clean Energy grant. As a result, donations for membership will not be eligible for matching grant money.


Donations can be made by check or by PayPal with the link below. Make sure to note on your check or PayPal form that the donation is for the Illinois Clean Energy Grant. Checks can be mailed to:

The Fermilab Natural Areas organization, formed in 2006, is a not for profit, all volunteer network dedicated to restoring, managing and enhancing the natural areas and resources of Fermilab in order to maintain and improve their ecological health and biodiversity.  We do not receive funding from Fermilab or the federal government and depend on membership, donations and grants to fund our operations. Throughout the year, we conduct work events where volunteers come together to participate in organized restoration projects. We welcome all volunteers, donations and memberships to FNA.


We aim to conserve, restore and study the natural areas within Fermilab while encouraging employees and neighbors to experience and enjoy Fermilab’s natural beauty.


Our vision is to see that Fermilab’s natural areas and ecosystems are rich in biodiversity, that conservation and restoration are sustainable activities, that Fermilab is a regional leader in natural areas research and that the people of the surrounding communities consider the enjoyment of our open spaces to be a valuable contributor to a high quality of life.
